You will notice on this list that at least four members of the beta
testing group replied to your messages on this topic. All of us told
you how to make it work, rather than berating you and telling you to
read the manual, as happens on some lists.
As Sheri pointed out, in this case, the help file is not clear.
I would also mention that if you gave us more specifics we could
perhaps be of more assistance.
I too have experienced unclear documentation, with other programs, and
spent a lot of hours figuring out things that should not be so hard.
This list has eliminated your need to get sidetracked by the help file
and told you how to make it work.
Just because it does not work to your expectation, does not mean that
it is buggy, or defective.
I built a clip a few years ago to ease creating command lines for
NoteTab. I do not think it works correctly with version 5 of NoteTab,
but I will be glad to update it and post it on the Clips list, if you
BTW, there have been at least 4 updates to NoteTab in 2007. NoteTab
Light was brought to version 5, and has had at least 1 update since
then. This is not a dead product, and Eric will gladly add new
features that add value without adding bloat.
